Look around to see what uses oil-cars, airplanes, boats, factories, and countless other machines. The world is dependent on oil as its main source of energy. Although oil is plentiful right now, the supply will eventually run out, and even worse, burning oil is very damaging to the environment. What alternatives can help us use less oil and how can we protect the environment? Read and find out!
Burning Books says "This book is great. Our only concern is that it lists nuclear power as one of the alternatives in the end. We've used this as an opportunity to also talk about what's so bad about nuclear power...and as an opportunity to use our big black marker and X it out!"
